Ashburton Cookery School wins Gold for Best Tourism Experience

Staff at the Ashburton Cookery School in Devon are celebrating after being named the Best Tourism Experience at the Herald Express English Riviera and South Devon Tourism Awards at a glittering ceremony on 3rd November.

The Ashburton Cookery School is one of the country’s leading, private culinary schools offering over 40 cookery courses for home cooks and aspiring chefs from their purpose built culinary academy located on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Judges visited each business as customers and as a result of their experience the cookery school was presented with the Gold award for Best Tourism Experience at a ceremony held at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay to celebrate the achievements of the region’s businesses.

Managing Director, Dominic O’Nions said ‘The whole team at the cookery school works really hard to ensure that everyone that visits us for a cookery course has a fantastic time, both in terms of quality of learning and enjoyment.  This award is a wonderful vote of confidence in our business and we couldn’t be more proud.’’

Also shortlisted in the category for the award were Newton Abbot Racecourse, Babeny Farm, Reach Outdoors, and the Virtual Jet Centre.
